Diablo IV’s first ever season in our long-term content schedule, Season of the Malignant, is officially live today! Dive into Sanctuary to take on the dangerous, new Malignant Monsters and team up with a former priest of the Cathedral of Light, Cormond, to capture their Malignant Hearts and use their power to your advantage. S
Starting this Season, we are also kicking off the very first Season Journey and Battle Pass where everyone can earn Favor and Season boosts just by playing the game, or cosmetics if you choose to purchase the paid tier of the Battle Pass.
As a reminder, seasons give all players an opportunity to start the Season Journey fresh with the new features and gameplay mechanics that have been added.
- With everyone on an even playing field, players can try out new classes and builds that they have been curious about—or journey through the season with an established favorite class/build—while engaging in the seasonal mechanics for a new experience.
- Leveling up a new character doesn’t require starting from scratch, as it brings with it the previous renown gained from discovering the map and the benefits from the Altars of Lilith players have found. To ensure your renown carries over to your seasonal character, login with your eternal character that has the most progress first.
- If you have the mount unlocked, you will also be able to use it immediately on your new character.
- After each season concludes, all characters will be migrated to the Eternal Realm, where players will be able to access them permanently.
